#1. The Coolness Factor
The breeze has easy access to your scalp. No product gumming up the works. You’re not pushing a mop of hair out of your face while exercising. Yes, it’s cliche (“I cut my hair because it’s too hot out”) but you might be surprised how big of a difference this makes during the summer.
#2. The Coolness Factor
Look, say your features are unfairly… harmless(?) looking. Despite your personality & accomplishments, when people first meet you, their first impression is that you’re an overgrown Christopher Robin. Anything but intriguing. You don’t want to cut your hair for strangers, far from it, but a short buzz hardly ever looks as “safe” as a conservative side-part.
#3. There’s value in consistency.
It’s hard, really hard for this hairstyle to not at least look good. Great? Maybe not. But it’ll always look good. You get out of the shower and… there it is. Is good 100% of the time better than great 65% of the time?
#4. It can project confidence
You can’t hide behind anything. A lot of guys wear baseball caps all the time because they like to hide their hair, their eyes, or both. The same can be said for longer hairstyles. They can distract from the face. A close buzz = there you are. And even if you might not be Brad Pitt from the neck up, embracing your features shows you’re comfortable with yourself.
#5. It looks oddly good on someone well dressed
It’s a clash for sure, but a good one. Combining a no nonsense haircut with an outfit that appears to have had some effort put into it makes people take notice, without seeing you as a peacock.
#6. It’ll be a good preview of what you’ll look like bald
25% of men begin balding by age 30. Fire it before it quits on you. A lot of guys spend way too much time worrying about hair loss. You don’t have to bic it, but getting a sneak preview of what it might look like, then realizing it’s not so bad, might help.
#7. You’ll appreciate your normal haircut more
Sure, this is the worst case scenario: you buzz it… and don’t like it. Maybe you actively dislike it (give it a few days, you’ll be surprised how it’ll, uh, grow on you). Or, maybe you really like it for the warmer months, and then once it grows back out, your old haircut looks that much better. If the grass is always greener, sometimes it’s not bad to hop over the fence.
